Police / Man taken to hospital following Gulberwick crash

A MAN has been taken to the Gilbert Bain Hospital following a road traffic collision involving three vehicles on the A970 at Gulberwick.

Emergency services were call to scene of the crash south of Lerwick at around 3.40pm on Saturday.

Police officers are still at the scene as the cars involved in the crash are being recovered.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Emergency services attended and one man has been taken to hospital.” There is no other information regarding injuries at this time.

Note: Police have this morning (Sunday) confirmed that the accident was indeed on the A970  south of the Black Gaet, and not on the B9073 as they had said on Saturday afternoon, when we first reported on this road traffic collision.

It is not the first time that the police got the location of an incident wrong. It puts us in a difficult position as it undermines the accuracy of our reporting.
